And then there's this......

URGENT: The most powerful evidence yet that mRNA vaccines hurt long-term immunity to Covid after infection

This was using data from the Moderna's clinical trial, where they didn't unblind the study and offer the mRNA shot to everyone like Pfizer did.

Of course I wore sandals on a day when it is storming like crazy. I blame the weather guys for not telling me it was going to storm like this.

Sec. Interior.

I don't know what's going on my department because I'm sitting here.

Someone please remind me: Was Jill Biden on the ballot in November 2020?  Or was she ever subject to Senate confirmation, or anything of that nature?

Getting further with one position, anyway. Details in Frontier.

Precedent! Edith Wilson!

Jukebox:  We Take Our Hats Off to You, Mr. Wilson
I have two recordings of this song; the first is the one in this link, which is sincerely praising Woodrow Wilson.  The second was recorded some months later, and---though the words are mostly the same---it is clearly bitterly sneering at, and opposed to, Wilson.  It's partly in the inflection of the singer's voice generally, and partly because, after heaping all the fulsome praise of Wilson you will hear in this recording link, the singer interjects, in a long run-on sentence, "I'vebeenovertoEuropeandIknowhowterribleitis..." which makes it plain that she's revolted at singing Wilson's praises. 

A moderately interesting historical side-note.
